Agronomists, Certified Crop Advisers (CCA) and custom applicators can stay current on agronomy issues on the grounds of the Farm Science Review this September.
The Farm Science Review Agronomy College, hosted by the Ohio AgriBusiness Association in partnership with Ohio State University Extension, will bring industry experts, OSU staff and researchers, and agronomy service providers together to enhance collective knowledge and learning at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio, on Sept. 13 — one week before the start of the annual three-day farm show.
“The Agronomy College provides insightful information and education for agronomists and applicators to better serve their customers,” said Harold Watters, certified professional agronomist, CCA and assistant professor in agricultural and natural resources at Ohio State. “Attendees will be able to confidently apply current research and knowledge in their businesses as a result of this event.”
The full-day event features time with OSU Extension staff in the field at the small agronomy plots and larger demonstration field on the east side of the grounds. Breakout sessions will feature topics including tip selection and herbicide tolerant crops, nutrient application, and precision ag.
CCA and pesticide application credits are also available to those attending.
This is the second year the FSR Agronomy College will be held through the partnership between OABA and OSU Extension.
“OABA continues to build and grow its industry partnerships to provide access to a broader resource base in an ever-changing industry,” said Chris Henney, OABA president and CEO. “This event is a great opportunity to help service providers meet the evolving needs of their customers at a personal, professional and industry-wide level.”
Registration for the Agronomy College is $120 per participant. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with on-site welcome and registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. To register or for more information, visit oaba.net/events, call 614-326-7520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
